sob not
the desert that cries
makes false its very being
as with you as with i
as with tears still falling

eyes cry tears
hearts cry words
lacking concrete counterparts
and so the eyes cry


tangible misrepresentations
fallacy
undermining validity

for loneliness
a shared burden

their tears counterfeit
